Members discuss life after lockdown and more during PACE Online
As we say our final farewells to June and welcome July with open arms, we will probably remember June as a month in which scorching hot weather returned with a renewed purpose and sport made its grand return behind closed doors.
These subjects and more were covered during our PACE online session, on June 27th 2020!
In the days leading up to Saturday’s PACE online session, Liverpool were crowned Premier League Champions for the first time in 30 years – a first in the Premier League. But perhaps what will stand the test of time will be the fact that Liverpool are the first ever team to win the league in June, – a record that’ll will likely never be broken, or at least for a very, very long time.
Possibly inspired by Liverpool’s impressive achievement, PACE held their longest ever Saturday session, lasting for 2 and a half hours! This wasn’t intentional, but the members just had so much to talk about!
A few of our members took the opportunity to give a mini tour of their homes – spotting sporting medals or which trophy cabinet was the cleanest quickly became a reoccurring theme.
Some of our members gave the group a brief insight into schooling from home, and pros and cons of transitioning from school from home, and the situation regarding their exams. This then led to an interesting and thoughtful discussion on work life post lockdown, whether working from home will become the norm in society – and if it will it be viewed as a positive or negative in the long-term.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a PACE session without a full body stretch – complete from head to toes. Making sure that all of our members get some movement, and encouraging them to stretch as often as they can.
Our PACE henna group exhibited their fantastic creations, from henna bookmarks to mandala. As expected, the group were astounded and amazed by the work and craftsmen ship that it took to create these pieces of art.
But that wasn’t all; announced at the end of the session; PACE presents… Poetry! A four-week course which includes:
- Introduction to haiku
- Creating your own haiku
- Metaphors within poems
- Sharing your feelings on what PACE means to you
- Finding and talking about a poem that means something to you
Once again, a massive thank you to everyone who joined and contributed to another fun-filled session.
